Above is a photo of the first Jacobs' car to ever win first place in a Pinewood Derby Race; so we got that going for us. The "Rattlesnake" was barely finished in time and the graphite provided by the Roddy's proved to be the clincher in the victory. It also helped that there were only 5 opponents. August's face and excitement were reward enough for all of Matt's hard work. The victory symbolizes a shift in the Jacobs philosophy about Pinewood Derby cars. In the past only the looks of the car were important; however, this year we finally got the whole package.


  1. Wow Auggie...congratulations!! We are wondering if Luke can borrow it when he is old enough.

  2. Auggie, Your dad always was good with his hands. I remember Brother Child saying that Matt was as good with his hands as any Dr. he knew. That car sure looks like it could go fast. Almost looks store bought.
